Neo-noir thriller starring a never-sexier Ryan Gosling
The ‘80s-inspired synth soundtrack purrs, Ryan Gosling simmers and the twinkly visuals pop in Nicolas Winding Refn’s ode to rubber-burning action movies.
Flush with style and championing gut-wrenching violence, Drive was easily one of the coolest movies of the year. The pedal’s put to the metal within minutes as Gosling’s ‘Driver’ takes on a job as a getaway man – speeding crims away from the scenes of their latest crimes.
“You give me a time and a place, I give you a five minute window,” Gosling drawls. “Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what.” The rest is history.
